No.161 Pistachio & Cardamom Pudding with Blackberry & Bay Coulis

This is a mor usual recipe and is inspired by a combination of Turkish milk desert and the my favourite pastry from 12 Triangles, blackberry and pistachio croissant. Pistachio and blackberry work perfectly together. Underlying notes of cardamon and bay further help bring together the dessert.

Optional you can run the pudding though a sieve to make sure you have no lump of corn flour left in the pudding. This also helps cool down the dessert faster if you are rush to get it in the fridge.
